Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
100 Spring Essentials for Under $200
That’s the ad headline I saw. It prompted the questions like the following:
- If I buy only 99 of the 100 essential things, will I perish?
- Is there anything “essential” that costs more than $200?
- Is there anything truly essential that’s free?
“Essential” is what Jesus is.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.—John 3:36
